Biowerkstoff Report
Issue 7, April 2010

Innovative bio-based materials (= Bio-based Plastics and Composites) can be, and are used already to a great extent by industry. In the field of bio-based materials a “raw material shift” becomes more and more necessary to overcome the dependency on fossil fuels and to bring about a shift towards bio-based products based on agricultural and forest resources.

This new issue of the Biowerkstoff Report aims to give a comprehensive outline of bio-based plastics and composites and to show new trends and important developments. Furthermore the report heralds the Biowerkstoff congress, which takes place for the first time at the HANNOVER MESSE (HANNOVER MESSE, 20.-21. April 2010, www.biowerkstoff-kongress.de).

This is the first time the biowerkstoff Report has been issued in this international context and is written mainly in English – more than 85% of the texts are in English. The special issue, the “Report on European Industrial Hemp”, is also new, and an annual edition is planned.
